NOTE:  The variables in this section are recoded variables
that were created from one or more variables from the
following sections: Adult Mental Health Treatment and
Recoded Substance Treatment.

The following variable, AMHOUTP3, is defined as SAS missing
if a respondent reported receiving outpatient mental health
treatment/counseling in the past year at "Some Other Place"
(AUOPTYR=1 and AUOPOTOP=1) only and their write-in response
was classified as an invalid outpatient mental health
treatment/counseling location or alternative
treatment/support (AUOPYRS2=7,8,10,72). In addition to the
responses described above, respondents aged 12-17 and those
coded as bad data, legitimate skip, don't know, refused, or
blank (AUOPTYR=85,94,97,98,99) were also defined as SAS
missing.  A respondent was assigned a positive response if
they indicated they had received outpatient mental health
treatment/counseling in the past year (AUOPTYR=1) and they
did not indicate an alternative source or invalid outpatient
location (AUOPYRS2=7,8,10,72) as their only location for
outpatient treatment.
